Financial accounting databases and ERP systems are among the most important applications that create and manage data for the financial reports and internal controls that SOX addresses. Therefore, structured data needs to be addressed for SOX compliance, along with any attached documents, messages and other audit-trail data that support the complete business record.

Several vendors offer database archiving products that can address these requirements. Companies should assess their archiving policy requirements and then match them to appropriate software and hardware infrastructure.
